I was born and raised in New Paltz, NY and lived in Raleigh, NC for a good portion of my twenties. I loved coming back here to be near my family and to raise my two young children.
I am community event coordinator for Water Street Market. I do marketing, planning and executing of events focused on sustainability and community support. I am Chair of New Paltz GreenWork, a joint town and village committee charged with educating the public on ho to lower their carbon footprint. I also bartend at a 36 Main Restaurant, a local wine bar, a couple nights a week.
I rent my house out for short stays and stay with my sister who lives up the block, or friends nearby. I do this to help supplement my income since I am a single mom. We look at this as an adventure each time we go and stay with friends and family and love being able to provide a centrally located place for people to stay. I know how hard that is in this town.
We have two indoor cats. A quiet and sweet cat named Puck, who we leave here at the house when we rent, and a rambunctious kitten named Freddy who we take with us so he doesn't bother anyone.
